Yay or Nay: Mantyhose?!

I did not make this up, people. Apparently mantyhose, i.e. pantyhose for men is on the rise in Europe and not just for the men who wear them under their slacks but also with shorts. There is even a website dedicated to "accelerate the acceptance of male pantyhose as a regular clothing item." (I think that Hanes smells a new sucker consumer.)


The visual of my boyfriend wearing mantyhose would be too much for my psyche to bear and would be grounds for immediate termination and grounds to sue for cruel and unusual punishment. No matter how the marketing machine wants to promote mens pantyhose as comfortable and accepted, it is not unless you are part of the of the community theater production of To Wong Foo or you do a fierce Liza Minelli once a week at the Male Box.


I'm just sayin.....

Wow! Such bigotry! If a man wants to wear clothes that he likes wearing, where is the problem?

The real matter is in the so closed mind of the ladies. Mens can have great looks and have the right feel the benefits of warmth and comfort too.

Evolve !

So you'd get rid of your man if he wore tights for health and/or comfort? Girl, you don't know fashion history. Men wore tights, skirts, and yes even heels and boots long before women got to them. You need to shut up and study some history instead of acting like a silly slut.
